Schools contract likely gets OK todayIts basically a 5.5-week contact, but after more than a year of negotiations that included outside mediation and court filings, the Monroe County School Board is poised to approve a contract today with the United Teachers of Monroe and get staff salary increases released. Monday, union membership ratified the deal. Among teachers, the vote was 323-9 for it. Among school-related personnel, such as bus drivers, food workers and custodial staff, it was 96-1 for the contract.That is great, 99 percent of the teachers, board member Andy Griffiths said. This is a much better outcome than to go to a hearing, union President Holly Hummell-Gorman said. If approved as expected at a special board meeting planned for 3 p.m. today at Marathon High School, state money for staff raises will be released to the School District likely by June 10, said Jim Drake, the districts executive director of finance and performance. The district has to send its plan for the raises to the state Department of Education by May 31, he said. My expectation is we will get the plan up to them before the 31st. We have to gather information such as the ratification results and the minutes from the board meeting to show the board approved it, Drake said. The district would pay out 85 percent of the raises in June 15 paychecks, then the rest in the following three paychecks, he said.The raises are $1,500 for teachers (between 2.24 percent and 4 percent) plus an additional paid day of work that, depending on base salary, ranges from $225 to $400; a 2 percent raise for school-related personnel totaling $55,000; and a 2 percent raise for principals and assistant principalsUnion members ratify it, board votes in MarathonBy LARRY KAHNlkahn@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSGreat white hits the KeysPhoto courtesy OCEARCHKatharine gets a satellite tag in Cape Cod last August. Monday night, the behemoth pinged off Key Largo. An unlikely tourist continues to swim off Floridas coast this week, capturing the attention of residents and researchers. Katharine, a 14-foot great white shark, was spotted off Key Largo on Monday, her satellite tag pinged at 10:43 p.m.Over the past week, shes swum past West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale and Miami. Where she goes next is anyones guess but her path seems to be taking her down the Keys, where great white sharks are extremely rare.Trackers are following the 2,300 pound shark on the marine research website OCEARCH. The website updates every 30 minutes. Click on her name and watch her go. Unlike some of the other sharks on the website, Katharines location has so far been continuously tracked. Researchers can see Katharines location each time her dorsal fin, where the tracking tag is placed, comes out of the water, allowing it to be recognized by a satellite. Katharine likes to come up and ping for long periods of time, said OCEARCH founder Chris Fischer. Some sharks ping only a couple times a year.The great white, who was named after Katharine Lee Bates, the American songwriter who penned America the Beautiful, was tagged off Cape Cod last August.

White, 30, remains in the Monroe County Detention Center on new charges of driving under the influence apparently his fourth DUI arrest since 2003 and fleeing from a law enforcement officer.White was driving south near mile marker 97 on U.S. 1, going about 15 mph over the 40 mph speed limit in a posted construction zone, around 12:30 a.m. Thursday, according to a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission report.Whites car was spotted by FWC Officer Mike McKay, working traffic safety near an active roadwork site, FWC information officer Bobby Dube said.McKay tried to make a traffic stop but Whites car, a Saturn, kept going for about a mile. Along the way, Whites swerving car struck a number of roadside traffic cones. The cones went flying, Dube said.Whites car finally stopped about 30 yards away. Monroe County Sheriffs Office deputies arrived and conducted a sobriety test and arrested White on a DUI charge.In addition to DUI, White was charged with felony DUI as a repeat offender and felony fleeing from an officer.White reportedly was in court Wednesday to be sentenced from charges stemming from a serious two-car crash near mile marker 87 in 2012. White additionally was charged with violation of probation.White racks up 4th such arrest in Florida KeysUPPER KEYSGet ready for the holiday crowdsThe summer season in the Florida Keys arrives with a bang this Memorial Day weekend. Memorial Day is probably the busiest holiday for boating here in the Keys, and the busiest for us, said Officer Bobby Dube, spokesman for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser vation Commission. Roads are usually crowded so expect U.S. traffic to be slower than usual, said Deputy Becky Herrin of the Monroe County Sheriffs Office. This is usually one of the heaviest traffic weekends of the year in the Keys, and we dont anticipate anything different, Herrin said Monday. If you do have to get out on the highway, plan ahead. A busy May for visitors strongly suggests a scarcity of hotel rooms over Memorial Day weekend, said Craig Cope, executive director of the Key Largo Chamber of Commerce. Judging on what weve seen last weekend and so far this week, its likely to be sold out, Cope said. Its a three-day weekend that marks the official beginning of summer, Cope said.

A spike in development has led to ever-increasing interest in 35 hotel-room allocations remaining from a pool of 100 units granted the city of Marathon by the state Cabinet in January 2012.So much so that Planning Director George Garrett indicated to the City Council May 13 that eight entities have shown interest at different levels in expanding or redeveloping in the city. He was clear that the need far outweighs what the city can offer. If carried through, such projects would create a need for over 400 additional transient rental units, Garret wrote in a memo to the council. Garrett said four potential redevelopment projects the former Ramada Inn, Florida Keys Country Club, Coconut Cay and Holiday Inn Express already have applications in for the limited remaining units.Vice Mayor Chris Bull said the time is now to plan for immediate and long-range development in the city. He suggested using city lobbyists in Tallahassee to begin the discussion for requesting more room allocations.We havent talked about it as a council in forever, but theres a need in this community, he said. If we need them to start doing some ground work, I need to know. Garrett said plans to prepare a memo for the council in advance of its May 27 meeting suggesting a couple ways they could approach [distributing the 35 units] to be as fair as they can. As for requesting additional units to meet growing demand, Garrett said that could be much more complicated. The state Department of Economic Opportunity oversees Keys development because of Monroe Countys designation as an Area of Critical State Concern. Garrett said DEO wants to look at the hurricane evacuation model again, as well as hash out a more consistent definition of hotel/motel units among Keys governments. Well probably take a year to get there. Real istically, any time were getting together in a group with our fellow jurisdictions, it takes time. The sooner we get started with that with some direction from [the council], the better it is, he said. The council agreed to have staff prepare a report. spots like the Sandbar off Whale Harbor in Islamorada. The FWC will have all available personnel on the water, Dube said.Well be patrolling heavily along with our partner agencies, Dube said. As always, theres zero tolerance for boating under the influence.Winds have whipped seas off the Keys for several straight days, keeping many boats at the dock, and the outlook for the weekend is uncertain.Keep one eye out for other boats and one eye on the weather, Dube said. Theres enough going on over this weekend without boats capsizing in rough weather.It already has been a grim spring on Keys waters, with eight people dying in drowning or dive-related accidents since early April. Two people died in separate snorkeling accidents late last week. Donald Tinker, 58 of Texas fell unconscious Friday while snorkeling with his wife in the Dry Tortugas. The wife told Sheriffs Office investigators they were snorkeling off a beach, apparently at Fort Jefferson, when she went ashore to fix her mask. She returned to the water but could not find her husband. Two other men did and pulled him from the water. They started cardiopulmonary resuscitation while a rescue helicopter responded. Tinder was declared dead at Lower Keys Medical Center. Lesley Clark, 54, of Pennsylvania was snorkeling off Marathon Thursday with Starfish Snorkeling. They were at Sombrero Light around 2:30 p.m. with other snorkelers when, witnesses told deputies Matt ONeill and Rosa DiGiovanni, Clark began coughing up blood. She was pulled aboard the dive vessel, which started for shore and was met by a U.S. Coast Guard vessel whose crew was training in the area. Clark was transferred to the Coast Guard boat and taken to Burdines Waterfront, where they were met by paramedics. She was pronounced dead at Fishermens Community Hospital. A friend of Clarks told the deputies that Clark was taking numerous medications and had a pacemaker. Expect lots of crowds over the weekendFrom Holiday, 1Atotaling $43,000.Non-union staff such as secretaries, clerical workers and administrators will also get 2 percent raises. The money, except for the non-union raises, comes from $1.25 million the Legislature set aside for the raises (all Florida counties received state money for the raises). The district is financing the non-union raises. The contract includes language allowing the School Board to impose unpaid furlough days if dictated by finances. In 2011 and 2012, the board imposed seven unpaid furlough days each year to save $1.7 million each year and avoid layoffs. The contract covers the period from July 1, 2013, to this coming June 30. Then talks on a new deal have to start, but Superintendent Mark Porter said he doesnt see the acrimony from the most recent negotiations carrying over.Well probably start in June. Well let the school year end and take a couple of weeks off and then start, he said.He said the fact that the union ratified the pending contract and that the board is likely to approve it today puts both the district and the union on good footing to get off to a fresh start. The board had the option of unilaterally imposing a contract. Starting with a ratified contract is better than imposed, Porter said.

Obituaries & Memorials Upper Keys: (305) 852-3216 Marathon Key West: (305) 743-5551 Doyle contract upA contract extension for Florida Keys Mosquito Control District Director Michael Doyle is back on the table at todays district board meeting in Marathon. The consensus last month was to extend Doyle past the expiration of his original three-year deal on July 25, but the board stopped short last month to clear up contract language concerns with district attorneys. There were a number of items discussed but not decided. They did not approve the contract officially, Doyle said. Doyle said its up to them as far as the boards preference on the contract length and salary. His original contract includes a provision for one-year renewals, but the board discussed up to a three-year extension. Doyle took over for longtime former Director Ed Fussell in July 2011 and his three-year contract expires in July 2014. Doyle earns $132,400 annually. The discussion of a contract extension came on the heels of Doyles 87-question job review being finalized in March. He received largely positive feedback outside of Commissioner Bill Shaw, who rated his performance unacceptable on the majority of questions. Shaw did not speak out against a contract extension last month. Todays meeting is scheduled for 3 p.m. at the districts 107th Street office in Marathon. Other agenda items include:A report from Doyle and Operations Director Andrea Leal about the possibility of video recording and/or broadcasting district meetings. The meetings arent videotaped or televised now. Commissioner Phil Goodman has pushed for the idea in the past, but the board never reached a consensus. At least one of the commissioners is interested in installing that. Its come up several times but theres never been a decision by the board, Doyle said.A discussion sponsored by Goodman to change monthly board meetings in fiscal year 2015 to not conflict with other major county meetings.The board decided to move meetings from the third Monday of each month to Wednesday for 2014, the same day Monroe County holds its commission meetings.Broadcasting meetings also on the agendaBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMOSQUITO CONTROLSome bug staff is moving northFlorida Keys Mosquito Control Director Michael Doyle is proposing to move himself and four other administrative staffers to the districts Marathon headquarters as it prepares to construct a new office on Big Coppitt Key. Staying put in the Lower Keys would be Mosquito Controls four-person finance team headed by Comptroller Bruce Holden. Doyle said he would recommend the move to the Mosquito Control Board when it meets today in Marathon, along with a recommendation to finalize plans for the new 3,500square-foot building on 1.25 acres along U.S. 1. There would have to be room for four small offices in the Big Coppitt building, Doyle said. All the time we, [planned to] have the operations people down there. We need them to serve the Lower Keys and Key West. I looked at all of that and decided we could fit the five administrative people up in Marathon, he added. Doyle said the reason for the possible move is parking space. Theres room for a little bigger building on Big Coppitt, he said. Thats not a problem, but were running short of parking spaces. To keep everybody down there, wed be squeezing too many parking spaces on the property.Key West architect William Horn is designing the building. It would feature about 10 offices and a large laboratory space, in addition to a separate garage, chemical storage unit and roughly 50 parking spaces.The reason for the new construction and staff relocation is the districts anticipation that its longtime lease for city of Key Westowned property on College Road would not be renewed after Jan. 15, 2015.The city has made clear it wants to address issues with the homeless before making any decisions about the sites future. The property has been suggested to be used as part homeless facility.According to Mosquito Control records, the Monroe County Planning Department signed off on a conditionaluse permit for the Big Coppitt site on May 14. A 30day public appeal period ends on June 13. The site is zoned mixed commercial but the permit allows for light industrial use.If none is filed, the development order would go to the state Department of Eco nomic Opportunity for up to 45 days to review, which would end on about July 28. The project would move forward without state objection.New buildings parking plan is the reasonBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMOSQUITO CONTROLCity: More room allocations neededBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON

Its time to eat thats why shes still here. As the water temperature increases, she will head back north. Katharines trek may provide new information for researchers. Katharine could reveal the path that an Atlantic female great white takes to get to the Gulf of Mexico, Fischer said. The public is in the research project learning at the same time as the scientists, Fischer said. While another great white named Betsy took a similar path as Katharine, she did not ping enough times for OCEARCH to see how she traveled into the Gulf of Mexico, where she was last seen. Betsy had pinged while she was in the middle of the Atlantic and then pinged again when she was already in the gulf, Fischer said. Where Katherine ends up could send a message about her personal life. If Katharine returns to Cape Cod this August, then its likely shes not pregnant, he said. If she doesnt go back, then shes likely to be pregnant. Tracking a pregnant shark could lead researchers to great white shark nurseries. Katharine is quite the social shark. On a Twitter account run by OCEARCH, Katharine the Shark has nearly 4,000 followers. But Burgess, the director, said its important to remember that for those following Katharine online, her location might not always be exact. There is a cone of uncertainty around where that shark is on every given time, he said. We need to remember there are restrictions on what that technology tells us.Great white is southboundFrom Shark, 1A D Customers alleged moreripoffs at adult clubTwo more men say a Key West adult, sex-themed business severely overcharged them on their credit cards Saturday the latest in a long string of similar incidents reported to city police.But police and the Monroe County State Attorneys Office say that while on the surface such behavior appears criminal, its not.When someone hands over their credit card and/or [personal identification number] in the expectation of services, there is an indication of an agreement between the two parties, Key West police spokeswoman Alyson Crean said. What that agreement is is what is disputed in these cases. This breach of agreement is what makes these cases civil as opposed to criminal.There have been signed credit slips. From what we saw, each one of those charges has been signed for, said Chris Weber, chief investigator for the State Attorneys Office. You signed for it. However, he also said there is a definite issue with the Adult Entertainment Club, formerly the Scrub Club, at 1212 Duval St. Thats obvious. When the Keynoter first reported on the issue, it found that police had been called to the club 301 times by upset customers from Jan. 1, 2011 (not 2001 as Saturdays Keynoter said), to Feb. 4, 2013. Thats an average of a call to the club every 2.5 days. Club representatives did not return a phone call seeking comment. In one of the latest incidents, German national Thomas Nitche, 29, called police Saturday. He told Officer Todd Stevens that he went to the Adult Entertainment Club to partake in a sex show, negotiated to pay $180 for it and was taken into a room. While there, a woman around 20 to 25 years old took his credit card because, she said, he had to tip the girls. He said that after the show, which was very short in duration, he was asked to leave. It is not clear what happens at such shows.After leaving, he checked his credit card statement and saw an additional $3,600 charged to the card that he had not authorized. He went back to the club to dispute the charge but was told to leave. Thats when he called the cops.Stevens showed up and interviewed the clubs manager, Russell Hiott, and one of the girls, Raquel Kelley. Kelley said she didnt recognize Nitche, and Hiott didnt shed any light on the situation, according to Stevens report.The same day, basically the same thing happened to Justin Thompson, 33, of Webster, Texas. He told Stevens that he went to the club, spoke with a girl 20 to 25 years old and negotiated to pay $300 for a sex show. The girl took him to a room on his expectation they would have sex, and took his credit card. After the show, which Stevens wrote in a report was very short in duration, Thompson left the club and later discovered $995 above the $300 was charged to his card. Stevens questioned Hiott and Kelley. Kelley said she watched Thompson sign credit slips and give a thumb-print for all transactions. Hiott, once again, had little to say. On May 13, a tourist from Virginia told police the Adult Entertainment Club overcharged him $645 above the $20 he initially paid. In April, another Virginia man said he was overcharged by $33,000. Chief Assistant State Attorney Manny Madruga said he doesnt believe all of the alleged scam victims are calling police. Many of them could be married, he said, and so you eat the $500 or whatever and learn from it. A call to the Adult Entertainment Club to speak with owner Jerry Andrews whom Madruga successfully prosecuted on 12 felony counts of credit-card-related fraud in 1999 wasnt returned. Andrews, also convicted of running a house of prostitution in 1999 in Seminole County, served a year in prison.But authorities say no crime being committedBy LARRY KAHNlkahn@keynoter.comKEY WEST The Adult Entertainment Club is an apparent endless source of complaints from customers alleging theyre ripped off.City seems settled on fleet yardOriginally intended for an affordable housing development, it appears city of Marathon-owned property on 104th Street could be the future site of a Public Works and Utilities Department maintenance/equipment storage yard.That idea has been batted around in the past, but the council agreed last year with Mayor Dick Ramsays assertion that selling the property to offset costs of a new city hall was the best move. The city now keeps its fleet parked behind City Hall. Ramsay said he changed his mind about the property after a bid process for a utilities maintenance facility in the citys industrially-zoned area returned unrealistic cost estimates. They ranged from $400,000 to $950,000. I changed my mind because it would appear we have available enough money to build city hall depending on how the bids come back, he said. The council appeared settled on using the 2.73-acre 104th Street property for the yard because the city already owns the land and having the opportunity for public housing on the site. Planning Director George Garrett told the council last week that plan was not new.A number of times in the last two or three years weve come up with site plans. The idea was wed come up with a combination of uses: A maintenance building in the front and some sort of workforce housing in the rear, from 10 to 20 units, depending on how we lay it out, he said.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON Keys InfoNet.comCome visit our online photo galleries and submit your own photos

Why? I work at the southernmost fire station in Miami-Dade County and my response area is from Florida City to the Monroe County line. We handle the 18-Mile Stretch and Card Sound Road. Many serious accidents occur on Card Sound, not only car accidents but boating accidents, too. Basically, we have nowhere to turn around once we are south of the Card Sound toll plaza; we must travel all the way to the intersection of Card Sound and U.S. 1 to make a U-turn, making it difficult to respond to calls. Also, no boat ramps limits us when there is a water rescue. God forbid if a boat, kayak, etc., begins to sink anywhere in that area with passengers on board. We would have no place to drop our small rescue boat. On a personal level, my father introduced me to this area as a kid; we used to fish under the bridge when the catwalk was open. Hurricane Andrew ruined that for us and I am sure many other families. On my days off, this area was always my go to place when the wind was blowing. I would drop my Gheenoe boat and find a nice spot out of the wind. On days when I could talk my wife into calling in sick, we would launch out of there and fish until we had to head home and pick up the kids. I know the reasoning behind closing the area down. I would never go down there during the weekends; there are too many people causing too many problems (I have seen it firsthand; I have responded to many incidents during the weekends). I just wish there was another alternative to shutting the area down to everybody.Most of the fishermen that used the ramps during the weekdays were very respectful to the environment and would not leave trash. I know I never did. You may read this and say I just want it open because I fish the area. I would say yes, selfishly, thats true. But I know for a fact that if there ever was an emergency in that area, and there will be one, that Monroe County will be held liable if there is any delay in response time because of all those barricades.Is someones life worth a few extra dollars to have someone pick up trash? Ed Yulkowski HomesteadACA improves coverageThe Affordable Care Act medical plan is a breath of fresh air that provides real medical insurance and not the kind of policies you buy at the flea market.If your medical plan was cancelled, it was not by President Obama but by the gypsy company that sold you a worthless policy. It did not meet the standards the ACA program demands. I suggest you change TV stations and learn the truth. Robert Page IslamoradaDrug testings reasonableRe: The article about U.S. District Court Judge Lawrence King ruling on May 9 that city of Key West policy violates the Fourth Amendment, particularly the part forbidding unreasonable searches when it comes to drugtesting prospective city employees. It is reasonable to test anyone applying for a city job. The employers are not going around testing everyone, but rather the people who come to them and want to hold a position in the city. It is not a violation of rights; it is more like a precaution. Suspicious looking or not, all employers should be able to test every applicant applying for a city position.

The United States, instead of offering help, should effectively begin to deal with its own missing-children nightmare and stop playing politics with their lives. Clyde Cates Jr. Key LargoDont ignore climate changeFlorida is at the center of the climate crisis vulnerable to and in many cases already dealing with the impacts of rising sea levels, coastal erosion and more erratic and extreme weather. Thankfully, Sen. Bill Nelson is taking up this issue and recently called for action. On the 44th anniversary of Earth Day, Sen. Nelson held a Senate subcommittee field hearing in Miami Beach on how climate change is affecting Floridas environment and economy. This hearing provided an important forum for local leaders and experts to highlight the latest climate-change science while discussing adaptation and mitigation plans for local communities. Flooding, saltwater saturation and land erosion are destroying habitats, hurting Floridas tourism economy and increasing insurance premiums. We cannot wait any longer to address climate change, and we commend Sen. Nelsons leadership on the most important challenge of our generation. Gene Karpinski, presidentLeague of Conservation VotersWashington, D.C.Remember V-E DayI am shocked and saddened that May 8 is not acknowledged by most cities, including my own. The end of World War II (Victory in Europe Day) was one of the most important events of the 20th Century. Thousands of U.S. troops lost their lives and there are still a few soldiers alive who served in Europe. We should mark the day and not just lump it with Memorial Day. Our civic leaders are found lacking in this instance. I was a child in France in 1945 and I do remember. I will be forever grateful for the sacrifice made by those soldiers who liberated my birth country. Marie Boudreau MarathonLatest water-improvement bill is welcome for the Everglades but doesnt go far enoughFor everyone who lives in South Florida and depends on a reliable supply of clean water nearly 8 million of us, plus visitors a decision by Congress to move ahead with a major waterworks bill (story, 6A) is a bittersweet victory. It authorizes at least $800 million for improvements in the Everglades but fails to include the portion that lies at the heart of the restoration plan. Leaving the Central Everglades Planning Project (CEPP) out of the Water Resources and Development Act moving through Congress is a potentially crippling setback for cleanup efforts of the vast area from the Kissimmee River to the Keys.The good news is that the long-stalled bipartisan legislation in Congress finally got the green light from Senate and House conferees earlier this month. That clears it for a final vote in both chambers, where passage is expected because of overwhelming support. (The House version won approval by a margin of 417 to 3.)The legislation covers water projects across the country. It includes about $174.56 million for the C-111 Spreader Canal in Miami-Dade County, which will increase water flow into the Everglades ecosystem. It also authorizes $627 million to reduce harmful discharges from Lake Okeechobee west to the Caloosahatchee River. These are significant achievements, a tribute to the hard work of Floridas congressional delegation and countless Everglades advocates and supporters whose unceasing efforts made it possible. But the omission of the CEPP is a huge disappointment. While much progress has been made in areas outside of the central Everglades, thanks to state and federal efforts, CEPP is absolutely vital. It provides $1.9 billion to restore a more natural quantity, quality, timing and distribution of water to the central area, according to government plans. What makes the omission terribly frustrating is that President Obama placed CEPP on the list of urgent public works, which should have sealed the deal. But suddenly last month, the Army Corps of Engineers surprised nearly everyone by delaying its approval. The Corps, whose support is essential for these huge water projects, had received letters urging endorsement of CEPP from Gov. Rick Scott, U.S. Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell and several members of Congress. The agency seemed to be on board, but at virtually the last moment it found a hitch involving differences in wording about water-quality standards between its own draft of the plan and that of the South Florida Water Management District, which would pay for half the project. Its hard to overestimate the damage done by this delay. The last time a national waterworks plan was approved by Congress was seven years ago. The previous one was seven years before that. If CEPP misses its chance now, it may not get the opportunity again for a very long time. Cleaning up the Everglades cant wait forever.

Marj Roberts Marathon A federal appeals court on Monday refused to reconsider its previous ruling that businesses dont have to prove they were directly harmed by BPs 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill to collect settlement payments. The decision by the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans could be a step toward resuming a claims process that was suspended after a district court ruling in December. However, BP spokesman Geoff Morrell said in an emailed statement that the British oil company is considering its legal options.BP had asked the full 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans to rehear the case after a three-judge panels March ruling. The court voted 8-5 against a rehearing.The action preserves U.S. District Judge Carl Barbiers ruling that BP had agreed in a 2012 settlement to pay claims without requiring proof that losses were directly caused by the spill resulting from the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig, which killed 11 workers. In the Keys where no BP oil was discovered at least $184 million was paid out to people claiming spillrelated losses. The figure is likely much higher.Judge Leslie Southwick wrote in Mondays order that a 2012 policy statement, issued by the court-appointed claims administrator and developed with input and assent from BP, spelled out the criteria for business claims.Instead of direct evidence of a causal connection between the Deepwater Horizon disaster and the claimants business losses, the exhibit described four geographic zones, several types of businesses, formulae for presenting economic losses, and various presumptions regarding causation that apply to specific combinations of those criteria. Southwick said all parties agreed to the criteria prior to final court approval of the 2012 settlement. Judge Edith Brown Clement dissented. Our courts decisions would allow payments to victims such as a wireless phone company store that burned down and a RV [recreational vehicle] park owner that was foreclosed on before the spill, she wrote. Left intact, our holdings funnel BPs cash into the pockets of undeserving nonvictims. She said the ruling made the court party to this fraud and said judges in the majority were trying to shift the blame for these absurdities to BPs lawyers. Mondays ruling consolidated multiple appeals in the case and appears to settle what BP said were conflicts between two earlier panel decisions related to the settlement. It is the latest development in a complicated legal back-and-forth over to whom BP owes money following the largest oil spill in U.S. history. A three-judge panel ruled in December that Barbier had to consider BPs arguments. But Barbier ruled against the company. BP is disappointed that the full 5th Circuit will not be considering the divided panel decisions relating to the compensation of claims for losses that have no apparent connection to the spill, Morrells statement said. Attorneys Steve Herman and Jim Roy, lead lawyers for the steering committee of plaintiffs in the case, applauded the courts decision. We are pleased that the Court of Appeals agreed that BP must honor its contract, they said in an email. The 2012 settlement doesnt have a cap, but BP initially estimated that it would pay roughly $7.8 billion to resolve the claims. Later, as it started to challenge the business payouts, the company said it no longer could give a reliable estimate for how much the deal will cost.BP says it has paid out more than $12 billion in claims to people, businesses and government entities. A trial scheduled for January in New Orleans is part of the litigation that will determine how much the oil giant owes in federal Clean Water Act penalties.Oil giant: Many claims not deservedBy KEVIN McGILLAssociated PressDEEPWATER HORIZON DISASTER Photo courtesy ASSOCIATED PRESSThe Deepwater Horizon rig burns following the explosion in the spring of 2010.Court wont rehear BP issue
Jumping on the latest hot trend seems like a sure-fire way to strike entrepreneurial gold. But while yoga studios and gluten-free bakeries may be popular, investors and business consultants say take a broader view. Trends in society, including changing demographics and technology, are the best guide. Instead of joining the pack, would-be small business owners should look for a niche and fill it. Theres money to be made in products or services that make life easier, particularly for the well-to-do. Businesses that deliver ready-to-cook dinner ingredients or care for elderly relatives are good bets, says Brian Cohen, chairman of New York Angels, a group of investors that buy stakes in small or young companies. Over and over again, the companies that are getting funding are serving upperincome people, Cohen says. Think about things that are convenient, save time and are fun to use, such as dinner ingredient companies, which deliver to customers all the makings of a dish like stirfried beef or vegetable lasagna. They offer people who like to cook the satisfaction of making a meal without having to shop. Elder-care companies, which send aides to care or do housekeeping for older or sick people, relieve the stress on family members when a parent or other relative needs fullor part-time attention.Why now?The economy is growing and people have more money to spend on things that arent necessities. As for elder care, people are living longer and are more likely to need help. Theres already a lot of competition.Two companies, Blue Apron and Plated, already deliver dinner ingredients to a large part of the country. And home-care businesses abound.Jen Collins Moore started Chicago-based Meez Meals, which delivers ready-to-cook ingredients to consumers, in 2010. She realized there was a demand for an ingredient delivery service when she worked with focus groups of women at a consumer products company. The women wanted to cook but didnt have time to do all the work. She started her business before Blue Apron and Plated, but isnt worried about the competition; unlike Moores rivals, Meez Meals delivers food thats already cut up and chopped, saving customers time. We do it differently. We do the prep work, Moore says.See opportunityThe opportunity: Organic, natural and gluten-free foods.The market for gluten-free foods, estimated at $10.5 billion in 2013, is expected to grow to more than $15 billion by 2016, according to market research company Mintel.But rather than trying to come up with a product like another gluten-free muffin, consider a business that supports or services the glutenfree industry, says Dwight Richmond, a purchasing executive at Whole Foods, the grocery chain.One example: A company that creates gluten-free ingredients like Penford Corp., based in Centennial, Colo. It makes tapioca and other ingredients used in gluten-free food.The people thriving are the ones who find new and better ways to innovate, Richmond says. A product that gives consumers the information they want about their food may also be a good choice. Investor Alicia Syrett bought a stake in a company that makes high-end muffin and cake mixes, Cisse Trading. She likes that it allows people to go online and research its ingredients and where they come from. Consumers want transparency. They want to know, what are we putting in our bodies? says Syrett, CEO of Pantegrion Capital, an investment firm. About 3 million people in the U.S. have celiac disease, an intolerance for gluten. Millions of others have food allergies. Many people are concerned about food additives like hormones and chemicals and foods that have been genetically modified. Others want what are called fair-trade foods, produced by companies that treat their workers and the environment well. By the time many wouldbe entrepreneurs grab hold of an idea, the field could be packed, says Dennis Ceru, adjunct professor of entrepreneurship at Babson College in Massachusetts and a business consultant. The most hot trend is probably at least at its midpoint, he says. See what other industries, what other business services or products support that trend. That might be an opportunity, he says. Kelly LeDonni got the idea to sell labels and tags for gluten-free food after she was diagnosed with celiac disease. A tiny amount of gluten can make her very sick. She started Gluten Free Labels in February 2013, selling to consumers online. The Washington Crossing, Pa., companys customers include restaurants, retailers and university cafeterias.Think informationCompanies that use technology to gather information to use in all sorts of ways are valuable for websites or mobile apps that allow people and businesses to find the information they need, or to navigate daily life. The information can help retailers and other companies find good customers.Think businesses modeled after OpenTable, an online restaurant reservation service; or Beauty Booked, a website that allows users to book appointments for hair and nail salons, spas and other personal-care businesses.Consumers and businesses expect to find answers to their questions online, and to accomplish tasks fast. But beware: Hackers keep finding new ways to infiltrate computer systems and databases. Businesses must comply with laws that aim to protect consumer data. Jalem Getz started Wantable in 2012, selling makeup, accessories and lingerie based on information supplied by customers. Wantable first collects customers answers to detailed questions about their preferences for makeup, colors and clothes. Then, if they give Wantable access to their Facebook account, the Milwaukee-based company gathers information about their online purchases and searches. The information is used to suggest merchandise for customers to buy. We see ourselves as a matchmaker between customers and products, Getz says.

Bishop Rosasco & Co., the city of Marathons longtime contracted Finance Department, could know by next month whether it will continue in that role in the fiscal year that starts Oct. 1.Interim City Manager Mike Puto told the City Council May 13 that he would provide a detailed report by its June 10 meeting on the pros and cons of switching to inhouse accountants.On April 22, the council unanimously approved Council man Mark Senmartins suggestion to explore the option, but Puto said it would take more time to produce a detailed report.In the meantime, he told the council that preliminary plans are to contact the Florida League of Cities and cities nearby Marathon of similar size to inquire how they are managing their finance department. Puto also said the city could issues a request for qualifications for accounting services and that the citys legal team has provided names of people/organiza tions that may be able to assist us with our search. Senmartin questioned Puto last week about the report taking longer than he wanted. Were probably going on about five weeks now since I asked if you could come up with some numbers for me. Particularly, the number Im trying to come up with is what we paid in total to Bishop Rosasco for at least the last few years on a yearly number, he said. According to initial figures provided to Senmartin by Bishop Rosasco, the company has between its fixed-rate ($365,736 per year) annual contract, hourly billing utility finance contract and other billing contracts (city manager recruitment) earned an average of $499,629 per year from 2008 through 2013. Were still missing expenses, credit card, travel, copy [making] and other stuff not included in the contracts, Senmartin said. Those numbers appear to be the holdup, Puto and Finance Director Jennifer Johnson told the council. Peter Rosasco appointed Johnson to replace him as director on April 22 amid concerns about a conflict of interest with Rosasco being part of the development team to develop a hotel at Florida Keys Country Club. Puto and Johnson said credit card expenses are itemized, with each expense having its own receipt and paperwork attached. Its hard to pull that information while trying to keep on top of our day-today, Johnson said. Theres a bazillion papers, Puto added.

A joint committee of the U.S. House of Represent atives and Senate last week published its final version of the Water Resources Development Act that authorizes nearly $1 billion for Florida cleanup projects. The bill has not passed yet but committee approval indicates passage is virtually certain, according to a statement from Florida U.S. Sen. Bill Nelsons office. These are major Everglades projects that would be very beneficial to improving the ability to store water and clean water, which are some of the keys for Everglades restoration, said Gabe Margasak of the South Florida Water Management District, the states lead agency on Everglades restoration. The closest project to the Florida Keys is a $197 million effort called Biscayne Bay Coast Wetlands Phase I, which will redistribute freshwater runoff away from existing canals and into the coastal wetlands along Biscayne Bay. A small pilot program at the Deering Estate on Biscayne Bay already has produced significant and positive results for the ecosystem, Margasak said. The federal bill references a Florida Keys project; however, that basically expands the ability Monroe County to apply for projects in future funding. No additional Keys funding was authorized. Other projects in the WRDA, like funding for the western C-111 spreader canal and a large waterholding areas covering about 10,000 acres in Broward County, benefit the southern Everglades and Florida Bay by increasing the flow of fresh water through the natural system, said Julie Hill-Gabriel, Everglades policy manager for Florida Audubon. Ultimately, its one of biggest steps forward the Everglades has seen in about seven years, HillGabriel said. But were still disappointed the Central Everglades Plan ning Project is not in the [Water Resources Develop ment Act] bill. The Central Everglades project covers a number of projects costing an estimated $1.9 billion to improve water flow near Lake Okeechobee, and prevent fresh water from being carried out to sea.That project hit a snag in late April when a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers review panel said the projects 8,000-page report was not ready for final approval. The Corps committee, the Civil Works Review Board, meets Friday in Washing ton, D.C., to consider it again.Conservationists sorely wanted the Central Ever glades project in the current water bill but that appears impossible, Hill-Gabriel said. That could provide incentive for Congress to increase the pace of Water Resource action, she said, possibly fashioning a new bill by 2016. A lot of other big-ticket items major did not make it into the bill, either, HillGabriel said. Were calling on Congress to come through with that process.THE EVERGLADESBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.comFirms records lack details, Senmartin says

Story, 2B Hurricanes take on John Paul EaglesA format change for Coral Shores Highs spring jamboree moves the start time back to 7 p.m. Thursday in Tavernier. The host Hurricanes take on Boca Ratons Pope John Paul II school in a four-quarter game that closes three weeks of spring drills. Its going to look like a regular game, with the exception of special teams, Hurricane head coach Ed Holly said. Pope John Paul comes off a 5-6 season but advanced deep into the North Division playoffs of the Southeastern Football Conference. Coral Shores (8-2) won the regularseason title of the conferences South Division before being eliminated in the playoffs.This will a great way to find out how match up in the conference, Holly said Monday.Coral Shores plans to suit up 48 varsity players Thursday, despite being kind of banged up from practice and Fridays Green and Gold intrasquad scrimmage. Linebacker Ariel Correa and lineman Adrian Tomas were being evaluated Monday.Twenty rising freshmen (now eighth-graders) who took part in spring drills cannot play Thursday but will be eligible for the fall season. Pope John Pauls Eagles, a team that had more passing yards than rushing yards in 2013, return the starting quarterback, top receiver and leading rusher, Holly said.We have no idea what [the Eagles] are going to do, and we havent worked on game-planning for them, Holly said. Our goal is finding our own baseline for next season, he said. Every team has its own dynamic, and that doesnt come out until you play somebody else. We dont know what were going to look like in the fall. Well play our base offense and defense, without a lot of extras, and see whatThe scrimmage is in Tavernier Thursday nightCORAL SHORES FOOTBALLKeynoter photo by KEVIN WADLOWCoral Shores High running back Eddie Dunn tries to power through a tackle by Kyle Couty in Fridays Green and Gold Game scrimmage, a tuneup for the 7 p.m. Thursday spring jamboree game in Tavernier against Pope John Paul II of Boca Raton.By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.orgDolphins take the fieldPaul Davis is set to make his varsity football head coaching debut at 6 tonight as Marathon High School hosts Palmer Trinity School in its Spring Classic exhibition game. The kids are very enthusiastic about being out there and are ready to play. Weve been out there for 18 or 19 days, so its about that time for us to go against someone else, he said. Davis said the Dolphins (2-8 last season) are experiencing a few nagging injuries. All but one player, freshman Jacob Mahoney, will be available against the Falcons. Davis said that 22 of roughly 30 players that showed up for the first practice have stuck with it. Some of the guys we lost were younger guys, he said. Its a varsity sport. If youre on the fence, I dont want you out there because you might get hurt. Some of the older guys, they came and tried it and maybe realized its not for them right now. The coach said hes not ruling out players returning or new ones trying out in the fall. But it wont be any easier then. Its going to be a lot different because we prepare for a season and not just a game. The spring is just a taste, Davis said. Along with having a new coach, Dolphin players are adjusting to a new spread offensive scheme and a defense that plans to emphasize pressure on the quarterback. The team ran a run-heavy Wing-T offense for the better part of the past two seasons under thencoach Lance Martin, who stepped down. Davis said sophomore starting quarterback Max Elliott Max is doing a great job of picking up this new offense and he complimented the play of running backs Chris Freeman and Danny Valladares. In the scrimmages, theyre running the ball hard, Davis said.He said center Mark Keller and receivers Deshon Fantroy and Sean Mark Keller have also performed well.On defense, sophomoreCoach Davis makes debut at exhibitionBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON FOOTBALL Photo courtesy KATHY LANCASTERSophomore Marathon High School defensive end Tommy Lancaster performs one-on-one drills at the National Underclassmen Combine in Orlando on Sunday. He was named most valuable player among defensive players from his grade. Conchs play spring gameAfter three weeks of practice, the Key West High School football team will play its annual spring game against Key Gate at 7 Friday night.The game will be in Homestead, not at Tommy Roberts Memorial Stadium because of repair work on the bleachers there. In late summer, the Conchs will begin their third season under coach Johnny Hughes, who is 7-13 after going 1-9 last season. Key West has about 50 players a much larger spring number than in recent season including, for the first time, some eighthgraders. Three or four of them will play in the fall, Hughes said. If an offensive line that lost three starters can hold up veteran Zack Hughes, the coachs son, is the anchor at center the Conchs have the runners to amass plenty of yards. The top runner is juniorto-be Mehki Sargent, who ran for more than 1,000 yards last season. He will be joined by outside threat Jeffery Anilus (a role filled last season by Deonte Stemage) and Dorian Cannon. Cannon, after a promising season two years ago, was academically ineligible last season. Hes fast, weighs 225 pounds and has rededicated himself, Hughes said. The starting quarterback likely will be Andrew Freeman, who had several long runs out of the tripleoption offense last season as a junior. We want to expand our passing game, said Hughes, who hopes Freeman can overcome the inaccuracy that plagued him in 2013.Senior-to-be Josh Shadduck looms as Freemans top target.Dylan Burke will be back with Hughes on the offensive line, which could get a boost from Valmir Gaspard, who was on the wrestling team. There will be plenty of experience on defense with Sargent, Anilus, Lawrence Marius and Anthony Henriquez.

defensive end Tommy Lancaster has been a beast during spring practices. From what I saw on film and what I see in practice, hes a totally different player. Hes a lot more enthusiastic and trying to lead the team, the coach said. Sophomore linebacker Trace Goodwin has been another standout on defense, according to Davis. He looks real good in practice and has a good attitude so were waiting to see what he can do in the ball game.Lancaster honoredLancaster represented the brand well on Sunday, as the sophomore pass rusher was named most valuable defensive player in his grade at a National Under classmen Combine event in Orlando. The brand is Davis mantra for the program and he says each player responsibility is to help it grow. Lancaster called me on Sunday and said, I represented the brand well. You never know whos watching, so he did a good job in Orlando, Davis said. The National Under classmen Combine is a national recruiting program for athletes looking to be recruited to play college football. Results from the events are reviewed by hundreds of college coaches. Lancaster performed standard drills like the 40-yard dash, shuttle run, bench press, broad jump and vertical leap.Palmer visits Dolphins tonightFrom Dolphins, 1B KeysInfoNet.com Keynoter 2B Wednesday, May 21, 2014 ACROSS 1Mend 6City on the Ocmulgee 11Bric-a___ 15___ -kiri 19Pianist Claudio 20Kind of potato 21Damn Yankees girl 22Heroic poem 23When it ___ . 24Andrea del ___ 2518th C.

LivingBook it: Summer wine readingWhat kind of person reads a 620-page book listing all 2,000 native Italian grapes? Or an off-the-wall mystery that involves murder in a vineyard in Provence?Why, its one of us a wine fan. If we cant drink it all day long, we can at least spend a few dozen sultry summer hours reading about it. Here are some books that I recommend for the beach or the cellar:The Science of Wine: From Vine to Glass (second edition) by Jamie Goode (University of California Press, $39.95). At a time when unmanipulated is the buzzword in winemaking, its stunning how much modern science has changed the process and how little we know about it. Goode is the man to tell us. Hes wine columnist for The Sunday Express in London, and he has a Ph.D. in plant biology. He spills the beans on the widespread but little-discussed use of reverse osmosis to mechanically lower the alcohol of wines made in hot California climates. He challenges the sacred French concept of terroir, the idea that the soil in which vines are grown influences the flavor of wines. He finds no scientific proof that much-praised old vines make better wines. Death in the Vines by M.L. Longworth (Penguin, $15 paperback). The Provence winery owner suspects an inside job someone has broken into his private cellar and stolen a very expertly selected group of his finest wines. The plot thickens when the eccentric wife of a friend goes on a crying jag, disappears altogether and is found in his vineyard dead. Offbeat characters, lots of neat wine trivia and a real summer page-turner.The World of Sicilian Wine by Bill Nesto and Frances di Savino (University of California Press, $34.95)Wine first came to Sicily in the 8th Century B.C., with Greek and Phoenician settlers. In early days, Sicilys wines served the Roman upper class, with urns found in the ruins of Pompeii. Sicily landed on the world wine map after 1770, when a British merchant chose its grapes to make Marsala, a wine fortified with brandy, as a cheaper alternative to Portugals Madeira. A wave of modernization in the 1980s and 1990s brought such international grapes as cabernet sauvignon and chardonnay. More recently, Sicily is sprouting state-of-the-art wineries that are bringing back the islands native wines: the red nero davola, the white grillo and others. Its a nifty guide to an upand-coming wine area.Down to Earth: A Sea sonal Tour of Sustainable Winegrowing in California by Janet Fletcher with photos by George Rose (Wine Institute, $34.95). For all their good intentions, many California grape growers have found it isnt practical or economically feasible to farm in a way thats entirely organic. Wente Vineyards, for example, uses all-natural fertilizers, but it might apply an occasional spray of weedkilling herbicide to avoid the extra expense of hoe labor or the extra fuel of tractor tilling. Honig Vineyards puts its wine in lighter-weight bottles to save energy. Its a new way of growing called sustainable farming. This is a compelling text with beautiful photos by two veteran journalists.Native Wine Grapes of Italy by Ian dAgata (Uni ver sity of California Press, $50).I always say every house in Italy has a little vineyard behind it. Now I have proof. This Rome-based wine writer for Decanter magazine and others has attempted to count every grape that is native to his country. His totals: 2,000 varieties, 1,000 of them well-identified by experts, and 600 in significant production. He describes a few hundred from Piedmonts Barbera to Campanias coda di volpe to Sicilys frappato to Puglias verdeca and on and on. His 620-page tome tells how theyre grown and how they taste. Its hours of pleasure for those who are tired of drinking only chardonnay and merlot.Try spending time learning origins, historyBy FRED TASKERTHE WINE GLASSThe Science of Wine gives you the whole story from how the grapes go from the wine to your glass. ferred back from Mississippi and will be a junior.

You promise in sickness and in health, but a new poll shows becoming a caregiver to a frail spouse causes more stress than having to care for mom, dad or even the in-laws.Americans 40 and older say they count on their families to care for them as they age, with good reason: Half of them already have been care-givers to relatives or friends, the poll found.But neither the graying population nor the loved ones who expect to help them are doing much planning for long-term care. In fact, people are far more likely to disclose their funeral plans to friends and family than reveal their preferences for assistance with day-to-day living as they get older, according to the poll by the Associated PressNORC Center for Public Affairs Research.And while eight in 10 people whove been caregivers called it a positive experience, its also incredibly difficult. Your relationship changes. Life as you know it becomes different, said Raymond Collins, 62, of Houston who retired early in part to spend time with his wife, Karen. Diagnosed with multiple sclerosis 15 years ago, her mobility has deteriorated enough that she now uses a wheelchair. Collins, a former business manager for an oil company, said he has felt stress, frustration and, at times, anger. The traditional vows are through sickness and health, for richer or poorer, for better or worse, etc., he said. At the age of 25 and 32, you say those things and youre high on love and healthy, and life is all in front of you. The meanings of those words are pretty much lost, even when you concentrate on them. Still, he said care-giving has strengthened his marriage commitment in ways he couldnt foresee as a newlywed nearly 37 years ago. While seven in 10 who cared for a spouse said their relationship grew stronger as a result, nearly two-thirds said it caused stress in their family compared with about half among those who cared for a parent. Care-giving may start with driving a loved one to the doctor or helping with household chores, but progress to hands-on care, such as bathing. Increasingly, family members are handling tasks once left to nurses, such as the care of open wounds or injections of medication. With a rapidly aging population, more families will face those responsibilities: Government figures show nearly seven in 10 Americans will need long-term care at some point after they reach age 65. Yet just 20 percent of those surveyed think it is likely they will need such care someday. Almost twice as many, 39 percent, are deeply concerned about burdening their families. Contrary to popular belief, Medicare doesnt pay for the most common types of long-term care and last year, a bipartisan commission appointed by Congress couldnt agree on how tofinancethose services, either. But the AP-NORC Center poll found nearly 6 in 10 Americans 40 and older support some type of government-administered long-term care insurance program, a 7point increase from last years AP survey. The poll also found broad support for a range of policy proposals:More than three-fourths favor tax breaks to encourage saving for long-term care or for purchasing long-term care insurance. Only a third favor a requirement to purchase such coverage.Some eight in 10 want more access to community services that help the elderly live independently.More than 70 percent support respite care programs for family care-givers and letting people take time off work or adjust their schedules to accommodate care-giving.Two-thirds want a caregiver designated on their loved ones medical charts who must be included in all discussions about care.
